Sprache des Titels:
Objective: This article focuses on the perceived effects of home-based telework during the COVID-19 Pandemic with respect to five outcomes (job satisfaction, burnout, work-family conflicts, technostress, and social isolation) and how these are affected by workplace arrangements and telework experience.
Methods: Cross-sectional survey data from employees in the IT, finance, and insurance sector collected during the COVID-19 crisis (n=808) was used for the study.
Results: Outcomes are most negatively affected by feelings of surveillance and most positively affected by suitably equipped offices. Organizational teleworker support is most strongly related to job satisfaction. Experienced teleworkers report better outcomes, due to improved support, less perceived surveillance and better equipped home stations.
Conclusion: Adaptation of management strategies avoiding surveillance and suitable setups of home-offices to reconcile work and private spheres are key to wellbeing of teleworkers.
